Some of my equipment:


Sorry about the picture quality, I tried to make it come out better but with the lighting this was the best I could do.




My old trunk setup, before I decided to go bigger and better.



and the old sub box, pictures don't come out too great because I never owned a good camera.



These were basically to test an idea and well I thought it would come out better too but with the Florida heat it started taking it apart relatively quick.

How the virtually woodless trunk begins.


The back of the trunk was lined with foil and cardboard where needed so that the desired shape can be achieved. The right side cardboard is there because there is a battery behind it.




Trunk is finally fully foiled up with many layers so that a leak is going to have a hard time making it through.


Placing the fiberglass.


I didn't take enough pictures of this step, so next one I have is it taken out of the vehicle.


This is my first time using fiberglass so please go easy on me. I want to build a system with reduced weight from wood, as well as the ability to be removed by someone who knows how to remove it in under 30mins, yet at the same time be stable enough to take up to 3g's of force in any direction.

Is your turbo setup a complete kit? Or custom piping?

Its basically a complete kit minus the HKS blowoff valve and the fuel system. On a mustang, there is very little room to play around with piping so unless you can bend pipes on your own I don't recommend it.

Run into any issues with the Granetelli kit. Everything fit like it should?

Everything fit, just like it should, it's not easy to get it to fit but it does. If you have the entire car on a lift it would be cake but 1-2ft off the ground means it's very hard to install certain parts. All-in-All I'm happy with it and I got a good deal from granatelli on it. I had it dynoed at 7psi to be 400hp and 430lb torque but its at 10 now and I will be getting it redynoed soon.

Some parts of the first stage didn't come out as I hoped so I had to fix it with foam. Was even able to get the foam to help support the wooden frame.


Picture of just the fleece



Added the fiberglass




From this stage of the trunk build, I can see there is going to be 1 very long day of body work and preping for paint.

I bought my rings on eBay. 1" MDF rings for 12.99 shipped each. I didn't have a router and being flush mounted I was very excited to fine it. Called a few local shops and they wanted about $30 a ring and not flush mounts.



Also added a picture of the 6x9's that are in the rear deck since I've taken them out to work on the trunk amp rack.

I was actually not really wanting to buy these from Hifonics because I never heard anything about there full-range

speakers but I'm actually impressed how clear they are, but I haven't had a chance to amp them yet.
